Nelson Havi moves to Court to save parents from the CBC Burden

Parents have been lamenting how expensive it is to educate their children under CBC

Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi

Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi has said that he will move to Court to file a petition challenging the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).

In a statement, Havi said that the education system in Kenya should not be an expensive affair or an ineffective experiment on school going children.

“I have heard your cries parents, guardians and teachers. The petition challenging CBC will be filed in Court next week. The education system in Kenya should not be an expensive, inefficient and ineffective experiment with our children and their future as is our leadership” said Nelson Havi.

Nelson Havi’s decision to move to Court comes at a time parents have been lamenting how expensive it is to educate their children under the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).

The new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) was meant to make learning more interactive and realistic but its becoming a pain for most parents.

Parents are now caught between a rock and a hard place with the new curriculum, which they say is costing them a lot of money.

Havi’s move was welcomed by a good number of Parents on Twitter, who argued its high time the government intervenes before their pockets run dry.

The Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) 2-6-3-3 was introduced in Kenya in 2017 to replace the 8-4-4 curriculum.

Prior to the 8-4-4 curriculum, Kenya had the the 7-4-2-3 curriculum which was a colonial remnant.

These various curricula have been introduced as a response to workforce needs within the country. As a result, CBC was introduced in order to churn out citizens with specialized skills.

Under CBC, students will go through two years of pre primary, six years of primary school split as three years of lower primary (Grade 1-3) and three years of upper primary (Grade 4-6), six years of high school split as three years in lower secondary (Grade7- 9) and three years of upper secondary (Grade 10-12) and three years of higher education.
